Just kegged Union Jack IPA from the IPA book, witing on it to carb, preliminary tastes were great. Also have my first attempt at Pliny The Elder in primary ready for first dry Hops this weekend.

If these are first year hops, I would be careful. First year hops are different than normal hops.
Just an FYI, The NB recipe sheet indicates 2.0# Carared, .50# Melanoiden
Which is correct. I was so tired yesterday I overlooked that when I looked at my recipe notes. I appreciate the correction.
I just put .25 lbs in an amber recently, and I think it tastes quite nice. It was a 3 gallon batch. I'm pretty sure Denny uses it in his Waldo Lake Amber as well.
I use carared, not melanoidin. The 2 seem very different to me. I use. couple lb. in 5 gal.

My apologies. I should have looked at the recipe before I spoke for it.
Life is what you make of it, I think hiding something from your children keeps things a mystery. And sooner or later they will discover it themselves anyway. (be it alcohol, sex, drugs, whatever... ). I would rather be honest with them, educate them and teach them to make good choices and be responsible than try to hide things from them. I view raising my children as my job is to give them tools necessary to survive in life. Those tools include being able to make good choices, and to do that they need to learn and have self confidence. That's not achieved by trying to hide things from them.
